I have a 5k coming up November 6th that I'm running with my cousin and to prepare I've been using the Couch-to-5k program (also known as C25k, found here). That's been...fun. It actually isn't too bad, and it's kind of exciting to see improvements each week (like, dying after three minutes of running vs. one minute of running).

See, I'm even avoiding talking about the craft room project.
Last, but not last, because I'm sure there's more, is Adobe Illustrator. I know how to use the basics of the program, but I've been looking at classes to learn the entire program. I get frustrated a lot because I have a lot of ideas, but I don't know how to use the tools to get it drawn out, so to speak. I found some local classes that would
P.S. I've been cleaning up the bliggity-blog, too. At the top of my blog, underneath the title, I'm sure you've all seen the menu links that take you to the tutorials, recipes, downloads, etc. If you clicked on one, you would have seen a list of links, which was eh. I've now changed it to buttons with pictures so that you can clearly see which tutorial/recipe/download you're looking for. Total awesome sauce.
What are some personal/long term goals you're working on, or have just recently accomplished? What are some things you wish you could do but just don't know how to do it? Spill it!
